I'd like to see what happens when someone lands on their head attempting an invert. Broken neck? Ouch.

That said, I'm going on a cruise here in January, and the ship has one of those flowboarding setups on it. I'll be on that thing most of the day I'm sure.

Have you been on one? It's like surfing at 30 mph. Fun as help though. Takes some getting used to. One we went on surf half day boogie board half day.

They had one of the straight ones at the boat show here in town 3 years ago. My 9 year old daughter had to give it a try. She rocked it. Got right up on the board on her feet on her second ride. Was able to zip back and forth, up and down like a pro in no time. She drew a huge audience and because nobody else was in line she got to keep riding for about 20 minutes. All was well until on teeny tiny slip and pow, down she went and she nearly broke her arm. Off the ER we went. Nothing broken, but it was severely brused and had to be in a sling for 2 weeks. She did love it. I should dig out the video we took of her.

My oldest daughter was next in line to use one when her friend fell and ended up breaking her nose. Man what a bloody mess that was. The line was substantially lighter for the rest of the afternoon. There was a bloody white towel that no one picked up sitting in plain view for a couple hours at the entrance to where the line formed. Thankful I wasn't dealing with the ER visit that day. Worst thing that happened to me when I fell is that it nearly tore my board shorts off.
